Welcome to the Port Lands Website.
Waterfront Toronto, the City of Toronto and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority continue to work together to revitalize the Port Lands. Current efforts build upon the work completed in 2011 and 2012 as part of the Port Lands Acceleration Initiative.
This website is designed to act as a portal for information related to the ongoing efforts underway to redevelop the Port Lands. It is designed to keep you informed, allow you to continue to participate and provide you with up-to-date information on the various projects underway.
Public consultation will continue to be an important component of the revitalization of the Port Lands. Community meetings will be held throughout the process to ensure that the general public has an opportunity to participate and provide input and feedback. Stakeholder Advisory Committees comprising residents, businesses and other interested parties will also be established to provide a forum for feedback, and to provide guidance and advice to the project teams at key points during the projects.
Port Lands Charrette
The City of Toronto, with Waterfront Toronto, hosted a two-day design charrette on July 23rd and 24th, 2014. Charrette participants were tasked with generating ideas to be used as the basis for creating a vision for the Port Lands iconic Ship Channel and to identify ways to increase/improve public access south of the Ship Channel. The ideas generated during the charrette have been synthesized in a summary report and the core ideas will be used to inform a number of ongoing planning efforts in the Port Lands.
